A different kind of migrant

The Telegraph reports:
Their mouths tied with tape, 40 passengers were today herded into the Alitalia flight to Dhaka, where ministers lined up to welcome them.

For once, India and Bangladesh are seeing eye-to-eye on a group of migrants.

In a cross-border conservation programme, New Delhi is helping its neighbour rebreed the tropical marsh crocodile by sending over eight males and 32 females.
Good initiative. Now maybe they should send us Ashraful.
